5 transfered mates in 2 phases

The only orthodox twomover, wherein author wrestled with transfered variations in two phases. And even this theme has practically offered itself. Interesting changing mechanism by giving a free square in key move, even though with caption.

5 defence motifs
5 harmful effects


Canadian variation on Slovak theme in one phase:
5-point cyclic Ceara in exact form where the 5 thematic defence motifs in the right order produce 5 thematic variations linked in 5 consecutive pairs displaying each a distinctive feature.

Definition of the Ceara theme in exact form:
Against a WP threatening mate on the fourth rank from its game array square Black defends in the five following ways:

  1. pinning this WP
  2. capturing this WP
  3. occupying its mating square
  4. interfering this WP on the third rank and
  5. guarding its mating square.

Distinctive features of each pair of variations:
A-B: Black captures a different WP used to mate.
B-C: White captures the same BP while mating.
C-D: White captures the black defender while mating.
D-E: Both BPs unguard a mating square while defending.
E-A: Both WPs pin-mate on the same mating square.

Unity in this composition is also achieved through some contrasts occuring mainly between defence motifs (DM) and harmful effects (HE).
Black unblocks a mating square (HE) in A while it blocks the threat mating square (DM) in C. Black opens a white line (HE) in B while it closes the threat white line (DM) in D. At last in A and E the result is the same for Black whether the BPc4 is capturing the WPb3 or is being captured by it.
